It’s the middle of summer and it’s hot everywhere, whew. And this kiwi fruit seems so refreshing! Who wouldn’t love to receive this card in the middle of summer?
The Slice of Happiness stamp set has really surprised me ~ I’m having lots of fun with it! Today’s card starts with a standard 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ Whisper White card base, scored at 4-1/4.” A 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Crumb Cake card stock was embossed with the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder. Then a 3-3/4″ x 4″ panel of Whisper White card stock was stamped horizontally across the piece with the kiwi stamp and Granny Apple Green ink. I stamped off each time before stamping on the card stock. The stamped panel was then attached to the right side of the embossed piece using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Next stamp the kiwi stamp on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock with the Granny Apple Green ink at full strength. Use a black Journaling Pen to put little dots on the kiwi fruit, around the white centers 🙂 I used an Early Espresso Watercolor Pencil to draw around the circular outside edge of each kiwi ~ to give the look of the fuzzy skin of the kiwi 🙂 Fussy cut the kiwi(s) with Paper Snips.
Cut a 5-1/4″ x 3/4″ strip of Mango Melody card stock and flag one end with Paper Snips. Adhere it across the card as shown using Multipurpose Glue only on the portion that is over the kiwi piece. Let the left edge of the strip “float” over the embossed piece. Cut a circle from Vellum using the Layering Circled Dies and attach to the kiwi panel (over the Mango strip) using Multipurpose Glue only above the area of the Mango strip and under the area where the cut kiwis will go. Adhere the cut kiwi piece over the Vellum using Multipurpose Glue. Stamp the sentiment on a scrap of Whisper White card stock using Mango Melody ink, cut around the sentiment in a rectangle using Paper Snips. Adhere over the Mango strip using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Tie a little bow using Linen Thread and adhere with a glue dot under the kiwis.
